Menopause, Health & Wellbeing Product Review 2015

Stratum C Menopause Skin Care has recently been partnering with other organisations to find the best solutions for menopause management and we have had the opportunity to test some fabulous products that we would like to share with you. This is the first time we have written you a ‘product review’ but although we don’t usually, we thought that these products really were worth shouting about. We hope that these recommendations will help you on your menopause journey.

She works with organisations nationwide and has put together a comprehensive guide to managing menopause symptoms, based on her own experience and the professional advice of others.

Screen Shot 2015-12-14 at 16.49.01We have been reading the guides and are pleased to tell you that they are very informative and are a fantastic resource for women everywhere that are in need of some advice as they enter menopause and may be struggling to find information. Kathryn is a keynote speaker, writer, broadcaster and menopause ambassador who began her journey with Simply Hormones after starting menopause herself and found that it nearly ruined her life. In her guides, she talks about her own experiences and how to combat issues so to give other women a heads up of what is to come so that they are prepared for how menopause may affect their lives. Kathryn holds workshops and hosts talks, having been featured in the national press and on TV to spread awareness of menopause and it’s issues. Kathryn’s E-books and guides are available to download and you can contact Kathryn via her site:

We have also recently been testing some amazing supplements from a fantastic company called InnerMe based in London. InnerMe have developed strips of supplements that encompass all the nutrients you need to maintain great health around different times in your life.

74_featureInnerMe founder Nikki decided to start the company after being diagnosed with MS, where she struggled to find products to help her with managing her symptoms. She now provides an ingenious selection of supplement packs that each provide a 30 day supply of all of the things needed for maintaining great health, depending on your age and requirements.

I am in my twenties and my Mum, Sara, is in her fifties and we both got the chance to try the packs – and have been very pleased with the results. I struggle with low immunity due to once having glandular fever and my Mum, Sara, had a hysterectomy in her 30’s and is now battling with the throws of menopause, as well as symptoms of Fibro Myalgia. We both put InnerMe to the test to see what affect it had on our wellbeing.

76_featureAs Stratum C brand manager and regular user of the products (as is Mum Sara), I value the importance of using the highest quality products for your health and InnerMe are definitely up there for quality. They come packaged in beautiful boxes with clear instructions and the inner packs have clearly marked days so you know if you have taken your ‘strip’ for the day or not. I took the pack for ‘In your 20’s’, which contains a multivitamin, omega oils, Vitamin D and a hair skin & nails tablet – all very relevant to keeping me in shape! My Mum, Sara, has been taking the ‘In your 50’s’ pack which contains and advanced multivitamin with Vitamin D3 and Lactospore 15 billion, an evening primrose oil supplement, another with Omegas, MSM & Hyaluronic Acid and also a natural Vitamin E tablet – everything that one might need to maintain a healthy body.


Sara, 51, Tried & Tested InnerMe 50+ Supplements

We have both noticed a change in ourselves since beginning to take the supplements after taking them for one month to allow enough time for results. We have both had more energy and whilst I saw a detox affect, with improvement in digestion and skin quality, my Mum, Sara, noticed her digestion was also improved as she sometimes has issues taking iron which is often associated with constipation. We both have seen a difference in our hair strength and the added vitamin D, which is known for improving mood, has obviously made both of us feel much more positive, especially during the winter blues!


All in all, we are delighted with the results and feel that this is a great way

My visit to InnerMe London to take part in the ‘Do You Strip?’ Campaign.

to help stay on top of your health. By combining all of the things that you need into one helpful strip, it is time efficient and saves you having to buy separate packs at a higher cost. We highly recommend them, and the team behind the products are all absolutely lovely and helpful too, and very knowledgeable.
